THE destroying of pot plants is beginning to raise concern as to whether this current pattern could be instigated by the same culprits.

Members of the community voiced out their anger on Facebook last week after Ward 39 councillor Margaret de Andrade shared a post on the social media platform that showed pot plants at Baywest Boulevard drenched in what appeared to be an oily substance.

In a more recent incident, plants were removed from pots along Cape Road and were tossed across the road.

“The vandals do not respect the municipal property and our greatest concern is that people will now start stealing the pot plants,” said De Andrade.

Various members of the community have said the type of plants that are planted in these pot plants are incorrect.

De Andrade said that she doubts that this could be the reason for the pot plants to be damaged.

The Ward 39 committee members, together with the neighbourhood watch, will be keep watch on a regular basis in order to prevent any further incidents of vandalism around the area.

De Andrade has met with a police inspector for assistance on identifying the guilty parties.
